  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the bow tie pasta and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic, olive oil, and cabbage; season with salt and pepper; cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in the sausage and bow tie pasta; cook until completely heated, about 5 minutes more. Top with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I leave out the garlic because I can't have it. 15 minutes cook time on the cabbage is too long. You will get a bitter tasting, very pronounced cabbage flavor by cooking it that long. No more th...

This was just darn good. With minimal ingredients the flavor was wonderful. The only changes I made was to cut down on the butter, added 1 extra clove of garlic and I used macaroni because I d...

This was a very quick and easy meal. It tasted wonderful! One of the other reviewers said that you should only cook the cabbage for like 5 minutes. I ended up cooking my cabbage for probably ...

My husband, brother, and I liked this a lot. My normally not-picky kids ate it, but weren't crazy about it. There's definitely way too much butter/oil going on, so it gets a little on the heavy ...

My family loves this recipe. It is definitely comfort food. I cut down on the butter and olive oil quite a bit. Last time I added some paprika and it was a great addition. I use lean smoked turk...

This is a good tasting recipe except for the fact that it has too much oil and butter that is unnecessary as most other's said. Way out of proportion to what would be needed. That's the only r...
